Abstract [en]

For many malignant tumors a different microwave signature as compared to the surrounding tissue has been observed. Thus microwave measurements and imaging can potentially aid the diagnosis of malignant tumors, and a multitude of techniques and systems have been developed during the past decades. Active techniques include, e.g., the evaluation of the complex permittivity of a sample by free-space quasi-optical techniques and near-field probes, as well as imaging by microwave tomography and ultra-wideband radar. Furthermore, passive microwave imaging systems and hybrid techniques have been suggested. The most advanced systems exist for breast cancer imaging, of which several have reached the stage of clinical trials. Other application areas for microwave cancer diagnosis are tumors of the skin as well as brain tumors.
